OH, if I may: the most important book about the American West (seriously--this is the opinion of many worthy writers and historians, and not mine--I just stole it from them) would be Beyond the Hundreth Meridian. For his fiction, there are many, but Crossing to Safety is a great one.

The amazing thing about him is that Kesey, Ed Abbey and a handful of other Pull Prize winners (seriously) were his students, along with Sandra Day O'Connor and others...and he was very close to L Brower, and others in the conservation movement when it was "pure" (50s and 60s).

My oldman's favorite quote, although he got it from his job as a mason, but over the last 40 yrs I have thought of the two of them as forever linked, in a bizarre personal fashion...not sure that makes sense.
